  13. 13. http://ocw.kuleuven.be Content • Course on “Literature and Change in Europe”: This course aims to give an in-depth view on new ways of approaching literature and culture, in an extended sense, ranging from magazines to digital literature. The strong emphasis on intermediality aims to provide students with the necessary innovative tools for understanding the changing paradigms in postmodernity. We will especially focus on the interplay between literature, oral and visual culture, as well as to key concepts in cultural and textual analysis, such as literacy, fictionality, transmediality, popular culture, hybridity and creolisation. Finally, the context against which we will place these concepts is Europe: challenging classical conceptions of Europe as a geographical (continental), homogeneous entity and epistemological framework, we will propose a more fluid concept: Europe as a changing matrix of (cultural, political, economical) values where post-colonial migrations and globalisation are quickly reconfiguring its old, hegemonic position on the global map.
